Why Man United’s fans are furious with Harry Maguire’s post-Liverpool comments

 

Manchester United’s supporters have taken to Twitter in numbers on Sunday evening, to take aim at club captain Harry Maguire.

Salah leads rout

The Red Devils were of course back in action earlier today.

After slipping a full eight points adrift of table-topping Chelsea in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men welcomed arch rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford, eyeing a bounce-back result.

Unfortunately for United, however, such hopes were quickly brought to an end by an absolutely rampant Liverpool outfit.

Owing to a Mohamed Salah hat-trick, and further strikes on the part of Naby Keita and Diogo Jota, the visitors ultimately departed Manchester with all three points courtesy of a dominant 5-0 victory.

‘Shouldn’t be captain’

In turn, in the aftermath of Sunday’s marquee clash, it should come as little surprise to hear of a whole host of Manchester United’s stars being singled out for criticism.

As alluded to above, though, condemnation of one such individual did not come due to his latest efforts on the pitch.

The player in question? Harry Maguire.

Speaking in his post-match interview this evening, stopper Maguire was not shy in letting his emotions show, speaking from the heart regarding another difficult day in the history of such a great club.

One comment in particular put forth by the Red Devils captain, however, has since caused quite a star amongst the United faithful:

‘I’m here because I have to be here’, Maguire explained, presumably in reference to taking his place in front of the media in the game’s aftermath:

Whatever the context, though, the statement has since gone down like a lead balloon, with just some of the enraged social media reaction showcased below:
